A insolvência do clube fundador

  • José Pedro Mendes da Fonseca de Carvalho Araújo (Student)

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The club plays, as it has always played, an important role in the Portuguese sports scene. With the introduction of societies of a sports nature, especially in professional competitions, the need was felt to establish a special regime attributed to the club that, through the legal personalization of its team, founded a SAD. The financial crisis of clubs and sports societies is something undeniable, therefore we analyze the preinsolvency means to which they may resort, towards their economic revitalization. We also try to problematize the possibilities of detachment between the two parties, with special relevance to the insolvency of the founding club, with the indispensable analysis of the laws that apply in such circumstances. We also expose the reasons why the dissolution of the founding club does not compromise the subsistence of the SAD founded by it, as well as clarify the regime to which this company is bound.
